Red Reels and CounterCorp Present: RIP! A Remix Manifesto and officerfishdumplings
April 25, 2013 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm| $5 - $15
Join CounterCorp and Red Reels Thursday, April 25th at 7pm as they present an evening of film and live music including remix DJ officerfishdumplings and a screening of music the documentary RIP! A Remix Manifesto.
officerfishdumplings recorded works from world musicians and integrated them into an interactive remix platform that allows users to create audio-visual remixes on the fly. He will perform an improvised remix using his platform and allow audience members to give it a try. This technology is part of officerfishdumplings’ larger project called remix ←→ culture, committed to creating a fair trade remix music where anyone can have fun making audio-visual remixes and learn about source musicians through access to interviews, lyrics, and instrument descriptions.
RIP! explores the notion of copyright in the Digital Information Age, as technology shatters the traditional wall between producers and consumers. The film’s protagonist is a “mash-up” DJ known as Girl Talk who performs by chopping up and re-assembling other musicians’ songs. This participatory media experiment sounds an urgent alarm to save our culture and right to creative expression from corporate control and commodification.
CounterCorp seeks to spotlight and ultimately prevent the corrosive economic, political, and social effects of corporate impunity around the world by raising public and media awareness and encouraging informed discussion and debate about how corporations actually operate, and what they add to — and subtract from — humanity’s “bottom line.” CounterCorp presents the annual Anti-Corporate Film Festival, a three-day series of film screenings, panel discussions, and related events held every year in San Francisco.
Red Reels films highlight the work of local and emerging filmmakers and expose audiences to diverse global traditions. Screenings explore a unique interdisciplinary approach by incorporating real-time collaborations with artists from varying mediums like dance, painting, and live music. Future events in 2013 will feature co-presentations with local Bay Area film festivals like the San Francisco International LGBT Film Festival and the United Nations Association Film Festival.
